If you are anything like me, you're sick of tying shoes! Because let's face it, wet laces are no fun for anyone (HOW did you get wet, anyway?! Ew.)
Well, I have the solution for you- SHOEper Stars!
This incentive is fun for both teachers and students. Simply create a space somewhere in your classroom (on a bulletin board,etc) to showcase your Shoe-per Stars. Once students can tie their own shoes, they can either color/decorate their own shoe or pick a color shoe you have printed, write their name on it, stick it on the board, and they become a Shoe-per Star. Not only do students feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, but other students know who to look for by checking the board to see who is able to tie their own shoes and help out their friends. Never tie a lace again!
Included in this pack are both color and ink saver options. Personally, I use the color letters for my Shoe-per Star board and ink saver for the sneakers, as it allows students to color their own. For an added bonus, I purchased the Melissa and Doug Wooden Lacing Shoe for students to tie as their "Shoe-per Star Test" and for others who may not have tie shoes to practice. Just a fun, extra idea!
If you have questions/feedback, please contact me. Happy shoe tying!
